Water well maintenance important to water quality

INFORMATION SUBMITTED

A poorly maintained water well system can lead to poor water quality, so household water well owners should inform themselves of good water well maintenance practices, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) said.

“Neglecting a water well system’s maintenance can have a direct impact on one’s health, so it’s important to stay on top of a water well system’s maintenance,” said Cliff Treyens, NGWA’s public awareness director.

A particular concern with poorly-maintained well systems is the potential for bacteria to enter the well. This can happen if any of the well system’s sanitary seals, such as the well cap, are deteriorated, damaged or loose. The presence of bacteria in one’s well water could result in gastrointestinal distress such as diarrhea, stomach upset or vomiting. Some bacteria such as E. coli can cause severe illness or even be lethal.

To protect water quality, NGWA recommends periodic water well maintenance inspections. Such inspections also can help ensure that the well system is operating properly and prolong the useful life of the well.
